I speak for the bush

Anyone recall a poem by that title in high school?

Well, I have been in the bush…more about that in a while…

Innocence, simplicity, certainty:  I think we have lost those three things in the time immediately preceding and following December 27th.

It’s my first time online since December 28th, 2007.

During the intervening period, I attempted to blog via some two Kenyan blogger friends, – part of their work may be seen through the January posts at my campaign site; thanks Appollo and Paula.

They have done much on my behalf and our country, much as yet unseen – those two people.

I had no access to the internet – there is none in Cherangany.

I will be putting my thoughts together concerning the Kenyan question some time, and probably blog some about them.

For now, though, I remain on my knees for the country we call Kenya.

And do my best, in my own small ways, for the sake of peace, mercy and justice.

    I can remember that poem eight years down the lane, was one of my favourites in Poetry classes at St. Albert’s High Schoool, Ulanda.

      Should i
      Or should i not
      Take an oath to love forever this person i know little about
      Does she love me or my future which i know little about

      Will she continue to love me when the future she saw in me Crumbles and fades into nothing
      Or will she like a clever passenger
      Wear her life jacket to save her life in a faulty plane
      Leaving me to crush into nothing?

      What magic can i use to know what lies beneath her angel face
      We are both wise chess players
      She makes a move i make a move
      And we trap each other in our secret dreams
      Hoping to win against each other
